Professional Conduct Committee

Many of the cases which have gone before the PCC were vexatious and had little to do with protecting the public and more to do with GCC chief executive Margaret Coats justifying her position policing chiropractors. This has cost millions of pounds. My favourite case to come before the PCC was the chiropractor who was charged with having cat hairs on the clinic floor. The PCC dismissed the complaint: total cost in the region of £60,000

It goes against natural justice for the General Chiropractic Council to set a new bench mark for what constitutes “Unprofessional Conduct” without informing registrants.

  IN 2002 Margaret Coats made a complaint against BCA chiropractor Jesper Jensen. She got David Byfield then a mere tutor at WIOC to write a report on his opinion of the website. After reading my rebuttal of the Byfields report Coats decided to be more specific and focus on a number of statements...

A long time ago now, I was walking up the mountains in north Italy with an uncle of mine. I was about 14 years old. I remember asking him (in Flemish): “dad is a GP and you are a chiropractor, what do you do differently?” To which he slowly replied: “We are both trying...

Another example of how General Chiropractic Council wastes registrants money.

A new graduate usually starts work in August/September of the year of graduation and are expected to pay £1,250 for the full year even though they may only work two or three months of that year. Then new graduates are expected to pay another £1,000 in November for the following year. The GCC argue...

The message from the GCC is clear, adjust someone you have sex with and you could be struck off the chiropractic register.

Stuart Lawrence faced five allegations of unprofessional conduct and was found guilty of one of those charges;  That he had a sexual relationship with a 22 year old, self employed member of staff. The lady concerned has also taken Stuart to an employment tribunal, so there is no dispute that the lady worked in...

Its none of Margaret Coats business how adult chiropractors get their sexual pleasures, when patients are not involved.

I contact Steward Lawrence on Sunday to ask how his case had been going as it was scheduled for 11 days and I was dying to know if Mike Kondraki was one of the members of the Professional Conduct Committee that was hearing Stuarts case. Graduates of AECC will remember Mike was a chiropractic...

It is fair to say having a complaint made against you that alleges you are guilty of “professional incompetence” must be pretty stressful. Margaret Coats and her team of Rottweiler’s spend 18 months putting a case together. Then some months ago they would have allocated three days in September for the hearing, appointed a...

Will this be payback for the misery Margaret Coats and the General Chiropractic Council caused chiropractors in recent years

Four years ago I tried to get a few hundred chiropractors to make vexatious complaints against each other, to tie the GCC up in paperwork for years. Chiropractors thought everything would be better after the GCC elections and regulatory reform, complaints happened to the chiropractor down the road. If the IC find there is...

When I was on the register I would often see cases come before the Professional Conduct Committee and you would think there but for the………. These “allegations” were just posted on the GCC website, I know nothing about the chiropractor except the chiropractor is a woman and the patient is a woman who returned...

All the charges were droped against Bridget Gilmore today in what must be the most ridiculous case to ever come before the PCC. It has taken the GCC four years to put Bridget out of her misery because a former receptionist with an axe to grind contacted Greg Price at the GCC and with...
